Keynote address by Daisy Dyer Duerr, NASSP Digital Principal of the Year
She’s from rural Arkansas…with a heart for the educational advancement of 21st century students! Sounds like a conflict? Well, although she talks with a really heavy drawwwllll…she has obviously been a change agent in Arkansas Education.
She went into a school that was on the verge of take over and met with stakeholders initially to discuss student engagement. How do we engage students?
It’s about the technology and the relationship however. NOT JUST THE TECHNOLOGY!
We have kids that really needs us so we have to be awesome everyday. Technology and relationships are the great equalizers for all schools.
First steps – TRAINING the TEACHERS! Teachers must own their learning.
Make decisions based on your best people – Todd Whitaker
Teacher leaders are essential.
Technology integration is when you are extending the learning adding something effective through Bloom’s Taxonomy so that the students learn.
What if we don’t have much technology? It’s not about the tools! It’s about what you do with what you have.
Learning is a process not a process not a packet; so is engaging students with technology.
Great keynote with Daisy Dyer Duerr!
